Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the original technical use of this verb, ";initiate"; into the mysteries, which may underlie the Pauline usage in Philippians 4:12 (cf. 3 Maccabees 2:30), it must be enough to refer to such passages from the inscrr. as OGIS 530.15 θεοπρόποι. . . οἵτινες μυηθέντες ἐνεβάτευσαν, ib. 764.12 (ii/B.C.) ταῖς πα ]ραγεγενημέναις θεωρίαις εἰς τὰ Νικηφόρια καὶ μυηθείσαις, with the editor’s note, ";quae legationes ad Nicephoria venerunt et per eam occasionem mysteriis Cabirorum initiatae sunt."; The subst. μύησις occurs bis in the latter document—.7 ἧι [περ ἐπιβάλλον ἦν ἡμέραι τὴν τῶν ἐφήβων μύησιν ἐπιτε [λεῖσθαι, .9 τό τε τῆς μυήσεως ἕνεκεν ἀθρο [ισθὲν πλῆθος ἐδείπνισεν ἐν τῶι. . . In later eccles. Greek ὁ μυούμενος denotes one who is about to be baptized, a candidate for baptism : cf. Anrich Das antike Mysterien-wesen (Göttingen, 1894), p. 158, Inge Christian Mysticism, PP. 4, 349, and for a similar use of μύησις see SAM i. P. 15.
